For decades vacationers have made Negril Jamaica their favourite destination of travel.
Couples have come to enjoy the freedom it has to offer, while families have enjoyed its beauty and fun activities.

The western coastline contains the island's finest beaches, stretching for more than six kilometers along a sandbar at Negril. It is known as the "7-Mile Beach".
For years, Negril's 7 Mile Beach, has been rated as one of the top 10 beaches in the world by many travel magazines.
